Found November 05, 2012 on 5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry  has ‘some’ of the weirder superstitions in the league. Terry explains his superstitions in his blog for ESPN,in fact he has made one of them public (see above). ‘Some’ being the important word in the previous sentence, Terry has a few… * Jason will ALWAYS eat chicken before a game. * He ALWAYS wears 5 pairs of socks…..FIVE!! * The night before EVERY game, he will wear the the opposition teams shorts while sleeping in bed. He has a kit manager at Dallas who always makes sure he has the right shorts. Players have been known to give him shorts too. According to ESPN Boston: Only now it’s a little bit different: I sleep in the opposing team’s game shorts before every game. For example, Friday night I slept in Washington Wizards shorts since we played them on Saturday. John Wall is a good friend of mine. So I had his shorts from last year. What I do is I will acquire a pair of game shorts from each team in the league. Actually, right now, I have every single team’s game shorts. You might be wondering how I got every team’s game shorts. I have friends on more than 75 percent of the teams. But for those 25 percent of the teams I don’t, a little $20 to a $100 bill here and there can get you a pair of game shorts from a locker room attendant. I can’t name my sources, though, of course! So, yes, I’ve bribed a couple of guys.

4 reasons Jet is still taxiing

I love Jason Terry. I've shared my excitement for his signing numerous times on this blog. Yet for the past 3 games, former 6th man of the year hasn't been able to live up to the hype, which is perfectly in line with the team's story overall. Of course the Celtics are going to solve their problems and get better as they find chemistry/identity/Ubuntu/hyena spirit, but...

Thoughts from last night's "win"

My sister and I with a pair of Rondo's game shoes! I was lucky enough to attend the game last night in DC. I went with my mom and sister and had awesome seats about 10 rows up. This gave me a chance to really watch the Celtics up close and personal, and what I saw was a team that is still working on finding its identity.  The Wizards are a terrible basketball team. I said...
